Reviews of Zany

I found this at a thrift store. The ingredients / notes have surely aged. I find this hard to believe that this was marketed towards young girls. This stuff borders on a floral chypre. The top is quick. I got a blast of some sort of citrus. It was gone before I could figure out what it was. The middle notes smell of lilac, jasmine, and heliotrope. Leaving the middle I am greeted with an incense-y moss, with a cardamom feel. The base bounces back and forth with vanilla, patchouli, and sandalwood accords.

I'm sure this will wear even better after I put it an atomizer. Get those molecules bouncing around in the air, so to speak. Overall, I am very impressed with this old juice. I have a half an ounce of this cologne to enjoy. Well worth the one whole dollar I paid, for this.

Oh, how I remember that summer. I was going to be in the seventh grade. Our, Avon lady said she had something, for me. I was earning money. My mother was a great supporter, of me.
She, encouraged and was quite thrilled, herself for me! I bought the original classic bottle that stood on the edge. The bottom was flat and there was a small angle, that you tipped it on. It isn't the scent, though it was fine, it is what wore. It is just, as thrilling now to see it or find it. It's personal and our own memory and cool that we can see it and buy it, again.

I wore this in junior high and I loved it. It was more "sophisticated" than the Avon perfumes that came in figural bottles and were marketed to little girls. This one was aimed at teens, and came in a bright orange and pink box with New Wave graphics that captured the spirit of the late 70s-early 80s. Yet to me the fragrance reminds me of classic fragrances. I'm not sure what the notes are, but it smells like it has a synthetic musk or amber note that was common among legendary fragrances of the 40s or 50s. It's been discontinued for decades, so I've been scouring eBay to secure a few bottles for myself. It doesn't last very long, and I wonder if its because the fragrance has lost its potency over time. Zany takes me back to junior high school. Wearing it again is like being reunited with an old friend.

Well, it's unusual, all right: a syntheticky, ephemeral musky floral of the kind drugstores used to pitch to teenagers, but with _spearmint_ as its whole top story?? Not exactly awful, but definitely weird. :-)
